This painting must be a part of a portrait album prepared during the reign of Sultan Abdülmecid. The Sultan is sitting on the golden bayram throne in front of a dark background. The text written on both sides of the tall aigrette of Sultan Abdülmecid, was composed by Şair Şefik (Şefik the Poet) and mentions the Sultan's enthronement. On the last line of the poem, enthronement year 1839 is given by the letters (ebced hesabı). In the second line it is stated that Sultan Abdülmecid was eighteen years old when he was enthroned.
